Introduction to OFDM Generation
TutorTIMS – Version 2.0 Advanced
The following TIMS modules will be required for the lab. Read about the modules required for the particular lab section before proceeding:
OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is a combination of modulation and multiplexing, and more specifically, is a special case of Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM), as the name implies.
A single main data stream is split into many lower rate data streams (multiplexing). Each of these streams is then individually modulated onto a separate sub-carrier (modulation) and finally recombined into a single composite OFDM signal to be transmitted.
The addition of a cyclic prefix is also an important part of OFDM, however, this feature will be discussed but not implemented in this introductory experiment. The coding blocks will not be covered in detail within this experiment.
